Firstly, thank you to our client for allowing us into their home to help decorate the interior for their Christmas Party. We know Bec is a talented florist, however we did not expect such exquisite creativity and attention to detail which blew us away. The client was equally impressed. The house, to start with, is absolutely beautiful. But now, with these gorgeous flowers, it looks amazing. Enjoy these pics. In the entrance hall, a vase arrangement consisting of oriental lily, velvet flocked twisted willow, conifer foliage, silver suede and green hydrangea. Vase trimmed with silver satin bow.

Bouquet of Roses, Hydrangea & Trachelium

By adminew | December 17, 2009

Blue, cool tones and soft yet textural style – kind of dreamy. We like.

Bouquet of Calla Lilly, Eremurus, Trachelium

By adminew | December 17, 2009

Not the usual rose bouquet yet the flower combination is soft and quite delicious. We love this one! Eremurus is also called the foxtail lilly.

Red velvet branches – wow!!

By adminew | December 16, 2009

Ok … you know I like to take a good picture and these branches do look pretty awesome here, but you really need to come in and take a look and feel these velvet flocked branches. Clients asked how do we get them to look so amazing. Well, I have to say, it is a trade secret. The elves do work very hard in the back room to make these branches an absolute knockout. Ok, I think I’ve raved enough about the branches. Did I mentioned we also have velved flocked fat pine cones? Must show you a pick … soon!!! Cheers for now.

Classic White

By adminew | December 16, 2009

To congratulate a new mum on the arrival of her baby girl. Clients are proud grandparents. “A little ray of sunshine has come into the world.A little ray of sunshine in the shape of a girl”. This bouquet was a pleasure to make for the reason of the giving. Consisting of roses, mini agapanthas and bouvardia.

Hydrangea, Roses, Bouvardia

By adminew | December 16, 2009

Picture taken of this bouquet whilst in the arms of a client before leaving the store (thank you!!) We love these cool, crisp colours wrapped with complimentary chocolate embossed paper. All happy – client, florist and photographer!!

Bush Roses .. amazing! Take a look

By adminew | December 16, 2009

Make an impact using our specialty papers and fine satin ribbon. Bush roses are grown under cover outside rather than the climate controlled commercially grown cousin variety. These are what the old fashion rose looked like – heavy, heady scent; thick and sturdy stems (with massive thorns – ouch! – which we very carefully remove) and lush glossy leaves. Photos feature two bunches (30 stems) of mixed colours. Because of their limited supply, our regular clients know when they come in and snap them up. They are not on display for long. We are extremely fortunate that this cut rose grower has a passion for quality.

For Marina, roses and berries

By adminew | December 16, 2009

Really enjoyed making this festive bouquet for client’s mother for Christmas. It is a variation on the variegated rose with yellow roses and hypericum featured in earlier post. We’ve added some sparkle with silver sheer paper and matching satin bow. Presented very beautifully and photographed nicely, too. Message written on gorgeous hand made card. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to create this one.

Peace and Joy to you all

By adminew | December 8, 2009

Christmas … a time for giving and receiving, but also a time to seek peace and joy. So this year we have stripped away the shimmer of tinsel and baubles and focussed on what Christmas really is about. Our shop Christmas decorations have the essence of simplicity and craftsmanship. The wreaths have been fashioned out of twisted willow, reindeer bush & dodda vine. Hearts made from paper and dried lotus leaf. Flowers handcrafted with handmade rice paper. And in the centre our focus on Peace and Joy suspended with navy and white grossgrain ribbon. Simple, earthy, organic. Poinsettia now in abundance in store. Two colours and three sizes available – small, medium and large. Living gifts that have a lovely show of red leaves for about 3 months. The white poinsettia has been set in a birch log. These logs are versatile and very popular as a decorative feature. See …

Peony Wedding Flowers

November is a wonderful time of the year for a wedding. It’s the only time of the year Peonies are in bloom (in Australia, that is). These bouquets are simple elegance. Enjoy the blooms.

It’s all about the flowers

By adminew | November 3, 2009

Firstly, thank you for your interest in our flower blog. It has been very exciting to present the range of flowers that come in and go out from week to week. For those who can’t come in, here are some pics of the shop taken last Thursday. It was an amazing display – a show stopper for all who wandered through. The sights and scents delighted all, including ourselves. It is such a pleasure to arrange flowers for gifts or home when they so fresh and there are so many to choose from. These Phalenopsis Orchids plants have been popular for home decorating. Apart from looking great, they are very easy to maintain (water once a week) and the blooms last for about 6 weeks. They look great in one of these black ceramic pots. Or get creative and arrange them in a fish bowl vase, lined with green moss …

Peony or Rose???

By adminew | October 27, 2009

Although often referred to as a Peony Rose, this majestic bloom is not actually a member of the rose family. Peony has been in existence for centuries. It is native to southern Europe, Asia and Northern America. It was named after Paeon, a student of Asclepius, the Greek god of medicine and healing. Along with plum blossom, it is a traditional floral symbol of Mongolia. It is also known as the “flower of riches and honour” and is used symbolically in Chinese Art. In 1903 Qing Dynasty declared the Peony as the national flower of Imperial China. So Peony has quite a history, and deservedly so, for it is a magnificent flower. Enjoy now. They will be in season for about 6 weeks, till the end of November.

Rose, Peony & Lilac

By adminew | October 26, 2009

We are definitely spoilt for choice at the moment. Which is most favoured? It’s hard to choose. Peonies have just begun. They look amazing combined here with roses and hydrangea foliage. We will feature Peonies in future editions when they are in plentiful supply. Captured this image just as this stunning vase arrangement was being whisked away to a very lucky and deserving recipient. Combining these big headed roses with lilac was florist’s choice.
